If you’re not a season pass holder at our fine Colorado resorts (won’t go up enough, can’t afford one this year, want to try different resorts) there’s a great card that will help you get on the slopes at good prices: the Colorado Gems Card. Buy one this season (online or at any Credit Union of Colorado branches) for only $10 and you can take advantage of tons of benefits. Here are some highlights:
- buy a 2 for 1 adult lift ticket (Mon-Fri with blackouts) at Arapahoe Basin
- $10 off an Adult Full Day lift ticket at Eldora (boom! already pays for itself)
- get a $39 lift ticket or 2 for 1 adult during weekdays at Loveland
- show up and get a free weekday ticket in February 2012 at Ski Cooper
To me, this is a great deal (supplies are limited) if I ever wanted to go “off the beaten path” and try our more diverse Colorado Ski Country slopes.
